I'm looking at something to upgrade to, i've been riding for over a year now and i'm on restrictions for 2 or so years, I am wanting to upgrade to something I can bare to be on for 2 years because the ninja is just so painful now.. I go to the mountains and twisties with all my mates and I sit up the arse of an R1 and then we get to a straight and he's gone, I climb my way back up and by the time i've done that another straight comes up. I'm ready to move on from this bike, I use the motorcycle every day, rain, hail, shine and commute on it to and from work. I also love twisties and i'm looking for something sporty. I will be upgrading after my LAMS to an R1 or Panigale, but for now I cannot stand being on this 250 any longer, suggestions? I heard the Yamaha FZ6R was pretty good, looked sporty and the restrictor can be taken out and it's quite R6-ish? Would appreciate any advice, thanks!
